Is predicted to encode a protein with the following domains: Zinc finger, C2H2 type; Zinc finger C2H2-type; Transcriptional repressor SCRATCH 1/2; and Zinc finger C2H2 superfamily. Is an ortholog of C. elegans ces-1
; and chrI_pilon.g358
. In C. elegans, ces-1
is involved in negative regulation of programmed cell death and negative regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II.
